Given that oversight of an organization’s risks is one of the key responsibilities of the Board, this program seeks to equip mid-level managers with a broad overview of a typical risk management framework. It will also clarify the importance of having a robust risk management framework in place. The program will elaborate how to identify and categories risks; discuss what is involved in setting an appropriate risk profile; consider the different risk management roles in an organization; provide tools and techniques on how to measure, assess and treat risks; and clarify the role of internal controls in risk management. It will also consider the formulation of an internal audit plan.
